THE WORD FROM TIM

 “The Sandown circuit hasn’t been kind to us in recent years. It was a shame that we didn’t have the outright speed in the race today, we unfortunately dropped a couple of positions from our qualifying spot and then couldn’t make them back up.”
“Bathurst is our next event and the race everyone looks forward to all year, the track has something special about it, it’s like no other race on the Supercars calendar and you just never know what will happen on that race day. We’ll head to the mountain as prepared as possible and hopefully we can leave there with a much better result than we did here in Melbourne this weekend.”
 
The team will now prepare for the biggest race of the year – The Bathurst 1000, in three weeks time.
